Proverbs 29:18 says "Where there is no vision the people perish." Vision is vital to the health ad wholeness of the faith community.
But for church planters, especially in the early days this verse is turned on its head. Without people the vision perishes. You may have received the greatest vision from God about the church God wants you to plant but if people are not gathered then that vision perishes.
It has been said that church planting is all about BITS- Butts in the Seats- how especially true in the beginning.
